Grace periods give members a chance to renew without losing access to benefits and services.
According to a January survey from MemberZone, four-out-of-10 associations give a grace period of two to three months. Some offer none at all, and members at a few organizations get more than a year before they see their benefits withdrawn.

1 Month: 13 percent
2-3 Months: 40 percent
6 Months: 15 percent
